It is safe to assume that I wear sunglasses more than I probably should. If I have the slightest squint I pull them out and plop them on. Maybe my eyes are more sensitive than others (because I wear sunglasses all the time) but I've been known to wear sunglasses on cloudy days and at dusk. I can't stand to squint or the thought of the "crows feet" that squinting produces.

Any way, because I am constantly opening and closing a pair of shades, placing them on top of my head, or dropping them I am buying new pairs frequently. I don't buy the $150 pair, we tried that with Dustin (twice) and neither made it a substantial amount of time, but rather good name brands at stores like TJ Maxx. I even try to be practical (sometimes) and not get the latest style but more of a traditional look hoping they last.

Do you have any shady suggestions?

TMI Tuesday

I am in a blogging slump, can you tell?
My mom, aunt, uncle (brothers and sisters) and grandfather are going to the Holy Lands for ten days, starting today.
Avery is very vocal now, very.
I had one of these for breakfast, thanks kbroome.
Dustin and I have dentist appointments today. Yes, together because I loathe the dentist.
Kylee has me using Arrojo hair products now.
This warm weather has me pulling out skirts and cardigans, mmm.

Signing Off- M.R.

Posting It

Whenever I need to remember something, I either tell someone else (so we both forget) or use a handy-dandy post it note. My desk is like a yellow cow, assuming that the spots can be the same size and square.

I even have double-decker post its. This occurs when my note(s) are longer than I thought the would or should be and I need to stick multiple notes together.

Do you 'post it'?

Late on Love

I meant to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day on Friday but I didnt. Then I thought I could take a moment on LoVers Day to wish you love, I didnt, or the day after. But it's Wednesday and I am hoping you had a great Valentines Day!

We were up bright and early, Avery got tubes in both ears. She is doing great and we are slowly getting back on to our schedule. Dustin and I made dinner at home, steaks on the grill, potatoes, cookies and chocolate dipped strawberries. Mmmm Hmmm.

Is it warm where you are? It's been so lovely this week and I am craving spring time and summer trips (we haven't decided where we are going).

Cheers to love and warmth!

TMI Tuesday on Change

Well, it's that time again. Let's go with thing that've changed; change isn't always bad.
I've changed on many levels;
The number on the back of my britches has changed several times within the last year;
My friends and relationships have changed;
My titles have changed;
The amount of food I eat has changed;
I've changed my exercises routine;
My style changes with the seasons;
Avery's car seat changed;
The amount of time in the day has changed. Oh, it hasn't?;
The way I see Dustin has changed, he is even more attractive as "Daddy";
My priorities have changed;
My sleep habits are still changing;
And I am embracing good change, managing scary change.

you + me = us

Well, since we've last gathered I cut my hair. You can release your breath, it wasn't drastic. Some even call it a "trim".
Dustin and I had a lovely weekend together, apart and with our baby girl. Together we got my hur did, listened to 90s music, enjoyed frozen yogurt, and spent a night out on the town. Apart, I managed to get several things checked off my house keeping, to-do and me lists. He also checked some things off the house keeping list and went to watch the Super Bowl with friends. And together we cuddled and played with our little lovey (who is now an official crawler).

I hope you had a great weekend, 4 more days until another.

Summer Love

I'm ready for summer! We had gorgeous weather over the weekend which was a delight and inspired me to find the high waisted shorts, jean and khaki, which came with belts. Forever 21.
My next inspiration is my hair. I'm ready for a haircut. I don't do this often and it's generally a spur of the moment decision but I'm done. Bangs and Layers, please.
Summer also brings thoughts of lemonade, homemade ice cream and swimsuits. I'm not ready for the latter.

But, it's not summer, it's February so let's celebrate the month of LOVE.

Happy February!
